The scientific director of the Hydrometeorological Center of the Russian Federation, Honored Meteorologist of Russia Roman Vilfand told about this in an interview with URA.RU.

“In Moscow, the daytime temperature is about +15 degrees and above comes no earlier than the second half of April. As you can see, this is still a little over two months away. If we are talking about the melting of the snow cover, then in the Moscow region and in adjacent areas it occurs in the first days of April. In the south – in the last days of March, in the north – on April 7-8, ”said Roman Vilfand.

What kind of spring is this if the snow has a maximum height. This is not always the case, but I am talking about average values ​​for three decades, ”the source said.
